Fun New Game

Thinkfun has this awesome new game for the little one in your house! It states age range is from 18 months and up. Not that you have to be a toddler to play. My kids range from ages 2-8 and they all enjoyed it.
It's so nice to have a game that the younger children can play with the family. It is really hard to get my 2 yr old to understand Monopoly right now. Our family game nights will be so much more fun now that my youngest has a game she can play.
You have this cube with 6 different colors. You have 6 sets of colored cards. Roll the cube and the fun begins.

Roll & Play™
Your Child’s First Game:
Roll & Play is the first game ever designed specifically for toddlers! To play, simply toss the big plush cube and identify which colored side faces up. Choose a matching color card and perform the simple activity shown. “Make a happy face,” “Moo like a cow” the activities supported by Roll & Play are designed to help your child shine, supporting healthy development and celebrating success! Roll & Play is the ideal way to gently introduce play patterns and rules through a loving, joyful play experience! 
Game Features: 
  • 1 Large Plush Cube
  • 48 Cards – 8 in Each Category
  • Storage Pocket for Cards
  • Parent’s Guide
My kids LOVED this game and played a couple hours straight. I love that my youngest can understand everything. And for the cards she doesn't understand my son will read them to her. Great for positive sibling interactions. They didn't argue one time. They just enjoyed helping each other finish their turn so they could go next. I love the educational benefit and the easy storage pocket the cards.

Strawberry Shortcake

My daughter recently had a Strawberry Shortcake themed birthday party. I thought how wonderful it would be for her to dress up as the main character. I found the perfect costume at Wholesale Costume Club. You can find other great cartoon costumes as well. 
My newly turned 3 year old wants to wear her Strawberry Shortcake costume ALL the time! Everyone at the party gave her compliments on it. 
Someone else loves this classic cartoon as well. She has put together some Strawberry Shortcake articles. These pictures will take you back in time to your childhood.
Wholesale Costume Club is the place to shop when you are in need of a costume. They are quality made costumes that are meant to last. 

This item was received in exchange for my honest review.

Rascal Flatts Live in the Theater

I had the nice opportunity to go see a concert live in a movie theater. Well, I thought it would be "live" but because of our location...time delay.
The event featured a special welcome message from Rascal Flatts, followed by a 45 minute concert featuring a blend of brand new music from Changed and some of their greatest hits. It wasn't really like a concert though. the band members shared some personal stories, sang a song, more stories, another song. They have beautiful families! It was nice to hear about some of their persona life off stage. They're just regular people like us with a job they love. The Q & A part said they would be taking questions from the movie theater audience and to me that meant us. I don't know if the time delay made it so they couldn't take our questions or what.
The great thing about this event is that we got to hear some songs and understand where these songs came from. It would have been better to hear more songs and not so much talking, is what I thought in the moment. After the fact, I learned a lot about these guys that I didn't know before. Loved the experience. It was a new and interesting way of promoting a new album. I wouldn't mind seeing other bands do the same thing.

Now you have the chance to really see them live in concert! Rascal Flatts is giving away a trip for 2 and tickets to see them this summer! ------> Entries thru 4/30<-------

A big thank you to One2One Network for this opportunity
